Official thread sponsor: The Denim Doctor. First aid for your old denim.


Acne - fit true to size

APC New Standards -size down 2 or even 3 from true waist size

APC New Cures - size down 1 or 2 from true waist size

April 77 - size down 1 or 2 from true waist size

Dior raw 19s and 21s - have vanity sizing and are labelled as two sizes smaller than actual size

Edwin Nashvilles - size down 1" - quite a different fit to most jeans out there though (massive rise, loose at thigh and comparitively tapered at the leg).

Julian Red - fit small, so maybe true to size on raw and possibly size up on non raws

Nudies - size down 1 or 2

Raf by Raf - true

Ring - true

is there any place to still get LVC denim for cheap sale prices? or other heavy washed/destroyed jeans? size 31/32 preferably

I'm selling some vintage Levis that are a 30x32 in the classifieds if you're interested? They're not LVC, they're literally vintage from the 80/90s, though they're new with tags and they're a light wash - might be something you're after? They're made in Britain as well.

Haven't bought denim for ages, who makes a decent slim/skinny cut like the APC PS/PNS or Nudie Grim Tim or Thin Finn (Not buying either of those because CBA with hemming APC's and every Nudie I've owned blows out at the crotch really quickly).

Im the same as you. I know apc are decent but i just will never ever get a pair of jeans hemmed again. So fucking other that shit. Hence why i buy gap denim now or a decent brand only of it does different leg sizes.

I stuck this in the WANTS but maybe here might be a bit better.
I'm after a pair of APC petit standards that have been heavily worn, almost to the point of destruction.
Rips, fades, stains, repairs, the works. to fit a 33. Anyone got any to shift? Zoom?
